Hi plant experts (plantperts?)! I was wondering if everyone has the same issue with me in getting advice on plant care because most articles or Plantagrams seem to be written about plant care in the Northen hemisphere and may not be applicable to Sunny (hoooot lah) Singapore ? So I just acquired 2 alocasias (living dangerously I know) and advice have been quite general (spider mites blah blah blah) but I was just wondering if anyone had more specific advice about watering (and how) and fertilisation? The alocasia in question is the amazonica/Polly. My first one (which I recently had to organise a funeral for) came in an extremely well draining soil (which I may have underestimated the watering needs for) and my second comes in what looks like peat. Alocasia amazonica 2.0 sits in a shaded balcony with bright indirect light (south west facing) right on TOP of my plant #shelfie. Any local tips would be much appreciated! Thanks! Xoxo Carmen
My Caladium Lindenii is losing leaves, left with only one now.. Another Caladium Siam moon came with 6 leaves, now left with 3 leaves. Both plants are in the balcony with indirect sunlight. I repotted both recently into a potting mix suitable for foliage plants and last check, there is no root issue. I was told that Caladium goes through a stage of dormancy. Need your advice! Thank you very much.
